Default Is there a limit of words you can put in tables?

I need to know if there is a limit to the number of words you can put in a
cell of a table. I know there is in Excel, but is there in Word also?

AFAIK there is no specific limit; if there is one it's very high. I suspect
the only restriction is total document size.

Would you know what would cause a word document with tables in it to lose
pages when sent e-mail to another person? We had that happen with one of our
documents. The pages that were lost had tables with a large quantity of
information.

Sorry, no, I don't know what might cause that.

Several questions spring to mind. For example: was it a one-off? Is the
document otherwise alright? Do both sender and recipient have the same
version of Word (or even e-mail client)? Was the document zipped?
